BJP vows to improve economy, end policy paralysis
The Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday released its manifesto focusing on improving the country’s economy and infrastructure, ending policy paralysis and curbing corruption.
Releasing the manifesto on the first phase of the Lok Sabha election, party leader Murli Manohar Joshi said “We have chalked out a plan to improve the economic situation in the country in the manifesto. As far as infrastructure is concerned, improving manufacturing is important and it needs to be export oriented. We need to build a Brand India”.
“The sooner we do it the better it would be to generate more jobs,” he added.
On Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said barring FDI in multi-brand retail, the party was not opposed to the FDI as it will create employment.
The manifesto also focusses on judicial, electoral and police reforms said Mr. Joshi in the presence of Modi, Advani and Rajnath Singh.
